Pre-press – The Framework for Your Packaging

Our pre-press department analyzes your art files and creates the “blueprints” our press room follows.  We review or “preflight” your artwork to ensure all elements are printable, create proofs to represent your final product, and take your art files through our process flow, in order to make them press-ready for either our digital or flexographic printing presses.
